Team Selection & Grading 2017


2017 will see the Club build on our prior year strategies for the development of our junior footballers. In particular, we will focus on the correct allocation of players to teams according to ability, the provision of improved team coaching through our Coach Education Programs and opportunities for specialised coaching through the Technical Training Program. The key outcomes which the Club seeks to achieve and provide in 2017 are: - a “soft grading” process for our Under 7 players; - full grading opportunities for players in the U8 – U13 age groups; - establishing two graded teams in each age group; - supporting “play with requests” outside the graded team selections; and - establishing our teams so the skill range among players in a team is within an appropriate band. Aligned with these goals on team allocations, the Club is continuing to develop a strong focus on grassroots coach education for our volunteer coaches and, with that, better skill development for all our junior players. Coach Education Programs, fully funded by the Club, are offered to our coaches both in pre-season and during the season. U6s will have a separate Welcome to Football Day on the morning of Sunday 12 March at Norman Griffiths Oval from 10.00am to 11.30am. There will be no grading for these teams playing in these age groups. The day will enable teams to be finalised, players and parents to meet, and gear to be purchased. We will also be providing juniors and parents with information on the format and structure of small-sided football. More information on times will be provided directly to players.

Our independent Grading Assessor

We are delighted to announce that Former WPFC Junior and Manly United 1st Grade player Rhys Williams has been appointed as our independent Grading Assessor for 2016.
